The Liveable City reception: What is a good city for everyone?


What is a good city for everyone? That’s the question everybody involved in architecture, city planning and urban development are focusing on. At this reception, our keynote speaker Stephen Willacy, Chief City Architect in Aarhus, Denmark, will share his thoughts on the topic.

The reception marks the opening of the annual Liveable City conference, which is organised by the Royal Danish Embassy in UK in collaboration with the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.

We are very grateful to Cllrs Lesley Macinnes and Neil Gardiner who will provide the opening and closening remarks respectively at the reception which their generous support has made possible. Cllr Macinnes is the Convener for Transport and Environment Committee and Cllr Gardiner is the Convener for the Planning and Development Management Sub-Committee.

Drinks and nibbles will be served at the reception.
